Walk Report

Capital Ring Weekend Part 2 - Highgate to Grove Park, Sunday 25th August 2013
19 walkers, 26 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
19 walkers showed up. It was not raining. The toilets in Clissold Park were sweet relief and the cafe at the View Tube had scrumptious cakes. Things were looking up. However this was to be a long day. Nearer to 28 miles than 26. The Woolwich Ferry was enthusiastically boarded, though there were a few complaints about lack of bar facilities on board. A couple of hardy, determined types took the Foot Tunnel. The rest of the day's walk was along the Green Chain and we arrived at Grove Park, tired and footsore but in good spirits.
